    How to monitor or check RAID status in Windows 8?


      I have a Dell XPS 8500 with the H77 chipset and I have Windows 8 installed. 

      I would like to be able to monitor the status of my RAID (setup through BIOS) but I cannot find any reference to a version of Intel Rapid Storage Technology software application for Windows 8.  I can find only RST "driver" for Windows 8 and that download is simply a folder with some driver files in it.


      I understand that I can reboot the system and watch for the status of each disk (and I think also press CTRL+I to enter the Intel Option ROM setup utility) but I don't want to have to reboot my system to check the status.

      I would be nice to be notified when something happens to my RAID, from Windows.


      Is there a solution to this problem?
